A Cool Urban Home Behind a Heritage Victorian Facade

3 3

Presenting an exciting opportunity to acquire a pedigree property in the historic heart of Newcastle, 'The Cottage' c.1860 forms part of a group of terraces originally built by the Anglican Church for the Dean of Christ Church Cathedral. Renovated and updated over time, most significantly in the1970s and again three years ago, this stunning home flaunts a captivating mix of contemporary and industrial aesthetics behind an elegant heritage fa├žade.

Every level of this home seamlessly connects to an alfresco area at the rear with the dynamism of Newcastle harbour and views over to Stockton as an ever-changing backdrop. This perfect northerly aspect allows beautiful natural light to filter into every corner enhanced by two magnificent skylights that act as a light well down through the open staircase.

In its current configuration, the innovative layout features three separate living areas, formal dining, two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor, and the master bedroom and ensuite upstairs. A palette of exposed brick, solid timber and raw concrete is enhanced by matte black tapware, plywood joinery and pops of vibrant colour accents throughout.

This residence is the ultimate in understated urban cool while the 'walk everywhere' location has you perfectly positioned to enjoy all this historic suburb has to offer. It's a 500m stroll to Newcastle Beach, the same to Darby Street's dining and boutique shopping as well as the harbour foreshore and Honeysuckle.
